Steve Komphela talks about Kaizer Chiefs transfers in January

Posted: 7 January 2016 Time: 13:29

Kaizer Chiefs coach Steve Komphela believes it would be an injustice for him to rush into the market during the current transfer window when he hasn’t tried out all the players at his disposal.

The opening of the mid-season transfer window has ignited the usual speculation about the movement of players to and from Naturena but Komphela is keeping calm maintaining that he feels he needs to thoroughly work through his squad first.

Komphela says he actually hasn’t had all the time to see what players like Bongani Ndulula and David Zulu can bring in a competitive match situation.

Ndulula only has two substitute appearances to show for his time at Naturena while Zulu has started just one game this season.

“I regret the fact that I have not had a chance to explore all that is there in the sense that there are players who have not played so you need a bit of more time so that everybody goes through the mill. You have your Ndululas who have not featured prominently, you have Zulu, (Daniel) Cardoso, there is a lot. So one wishes that they could see everybody so that you can make an assessment that is more informed,” argues Komphela.

So can Chiefs expect any players to come into Naturena over the next few weeks?

“We are monitoring the processes and our policy dictates that we acknowledge that not everybody at Naturena has been used so you don’t just have to be drastic and make changes. If you bring in a striker what are going to do to Ndulula, did you do any justice to Zulu? In as much as you don’t want to waste time you must acknowledge the fact that you haven’t used them. But if there is anything worth looking into the policy dictates,” he says.
